OK, have sanded the top.
It’s currently “resting” under about 30 lb of weights laid out over the center of the substrate+top, lengthwise.
We will have variable humidity and about a 30 degree change in temperatures over the next several days.
I’ve found some 40+ year old oak strips to use as crossbanding on the underside. It was about 30 years in an attic in hot summer climate, so ought to be dry enough.
Do you think 4 strips is adequate (about 3.4 inch wide each), placed about 8” apart.
